Developing Study Skills in the Reading Process.
Reid, Neil
Study skills are comprised of both reading and thinking skills, and they can be classified as receptive, reflective, or expressive abilities. The objective of teaching study skills is to enable young people to study efficiently and independently in a variety of learning activities. The approaches to teaching study skills that are discussed in this paper are functional-incidental (practical applications in class), content-oriented, textbook, curriculum, and skill-oriented. It is emphasized that teachers should not merely adopt a specific approach, but should adapt one or a series of approaches to the diverse needs of the students. With that point in mind, four essential features of any good study skills program are listed: (1) instruction geared to students' individual differences, needs, and abilities; (2) correlation of the study skills that are taught in the reading program with other instructional activities; (3) Evaluation of pupil achievement and growth at regular intervals; and (4) encouragement of students toward increasing independence in the use of study skills.
